The landscape of student affairs in American higher education has increasingly become multidimensional due to more diversity of student population and more complex issues students bring to campus. This new fifth edition is designed to equip student affairs professionals to understand and know well not only the philosophy, history, mission of student affairs, and that their practice is theory-based and outcome-oriented but also that their role and function are influenced by the shifts in philosophy, mission and strategies, theories, and nature of American higher education. With most chapters substantially rewritten, this edition has included three brand new chapters which cover functional areas of fraternity and sorority life, collegiate recreation, and assessment and student learning. These three chapters are very unique in that student affairs mission, values, and organizational structure are clearly presented about these functional areas. In addition to the new chapters, the text has also expanded its content to international students, adult students, veteran students, and students with disabilities. This edition has been integrated with the most recent literature, professional standards, and critical issues in student affairs that have occurred since publication of the previous edition in 2010. The book is designed for both Master’s- and Doctoral-level students in need of an overview of student affairs functional areas. It can also be used as a teaching tool by middle- and high-level administrators who supervise interns or staff for professional development. Additionally, the text will also be useful to experienced student affairs administrators who wish to keep abreast of the current trends and issues. In the past 25 years, four editions of this book were published and each edition has been a valuable tool to serve as a primer for students, faculty, and professionals in their learning, teaching, and practice. This outstanding fifth edition is not only inheriting the wisdom of the original contributors but also flourishing the essence of the mission and values of student affairs in American higher education.
